    Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott (D) has accused his critics of racism after many labeled him the “DEI mayor” following the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge earlier this week. The collapse occurred in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a cargo ship lost power and collided into the bridge. Six people were presumed dead after the bridge fell. Soon after the collapse, social media users — including Utah state Rep. Phil Lyman (R) and Florida congressional candidate Anthony Sabatini (R) — attributed the tragedy to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Scott on Wednesday told MSNBC’s Joy Reid that...

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis told reporters this week she is the only DA in the country with enough "courage" to prosecute former President Donald Trump in the Georgia election interference case. During an Easter event in College Park Saturday for families in need, Willis, 52, spoke to the media for the first time since a judge ruled she could remain on the case. "There’s one district attorney in the state – and really around the country – that has had the courage to do this, and she continues to do it," Willis told FOX 5 Atlanta. "The case...
  • West Point Deletes "Duty Honor Country" from its Mission Statement

    Bravo Blue ^ | MAR 12, 2024
    Duty – Honor – Country. Those three hallowed words, reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, and what you will be. They are your rallying points: to build courage, when courage seems to fail; to regain faith, when there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn. . Douglas MacArthur graduated from West Point in 1903. By that time, “Duty Honor Country” was already recognized as the official West Point motto. Since then, it has become ubiquitous – Among many other things, it is on the West Point crest that...

    Jettisoning the motto in today’s environment poses a real risk to the substance of West Point’s mission and to national security.. March 7, Superintendent Steve Gilland announced a planned change to the official mission of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point: eliminating the words “Duty,” “Honor,” and “Country.” It is impossible to overstate the reverence with which those three words have been held at West Point, in the entire Army, and throughout the U.S. military. In his 1962 farewell address to the West Point Corps of Cadets, Gen. Douglas MacArthur encapsulated their meaning for American soldiers: Duty, Honor, Country...

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.

    The conservative Republicans in the House have long opposed Speaker Kevin McCarthy. As CNN reported back in 2015, "Republicans from the freedom caucus, the tea party caucus, liberty caucus and the conservative opportunity group interviewed the three Speaker candidates."It was a critical moment for McCarthy, the Californian who is viewed warily by conservatives skeptical of his ties to outgoing Speaker John Boehner[.] ...

    How many voters know that the Democratic Party supports legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy on demand for virtually any reason? How many voters know this position aligns with only six other countries in the world — three of them, not incidentally, being North Korea, Vietnam and China? How many voters know that Democrats want to pass a federal law banning states from stopping sex-selective abortions or the dismembering of the post-viable unborn or the requirement of parental and guardian notification for minors before getting abortions? How many know that Democrats want to strip medical workers of their...

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Republicans needed to show courage and pass gun laws. Jean-Pierre said, “We have had a president who has acted on this. I know you were asking me about executive action. What else can we do? This president has taken more executive actions on gun violence safety than any president before him, and he has done that in two years. Just earlier this month, we took another executive action.”

    “You can tell a politician is lying when they claim they want fairness for all. They're part of and represent an unfair elite who will never share their wealth, power or opportunities with the underclass.” -Stewart Stafford Conservative Americans have for a long time realized that the majority of their representatives in Congress, in both the House and the Senate, are squishes; men and women without the courage of their stated convictions. They fear the leftist media so much more than they fear their own constituents, for whom it seems they only have contempt. There are exceptions, of course, and...

    China’s Global Times government propaganda outlet predicted a poor performance for Democrats in next week’s midterm elections fueled by President Joe Biden’s incompetence and his insistence on delivering remarks about alleged threats to democracy, which it branded as a distraction from “real issues.” Nationwide polling, particularly in the country’s most contested races, is showing American voters shifting by wide margins towards the Republican Party. A poll last week published by ABC and the firm Ipsos found that inflation and the economy are the top issues for as much as half of independent voters and 73 percent of Republicans nationwide, consistent...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon this week took a shot at former President Trump ahead of his new role anchoring CNN’s morning program, saying that while he looks forward to starting the next chapter in his career — he hopes it will go beyond “tribal politics.” “I would be lying to you if I didn’t say that was a factor,” Lemon said of his move to mornings in an interview with news startup Semafor. “I never really butted heads with the last president. He didn’t have the courage to come on and take hard questions from CNN and me and my...

During his speech on January 6, Trump said, “And after this, we’re going walk down, and I’ll be there with you. We’re going walk down to the Capitol.”

    Barbra Streisand is using her voice to aid Ukraine in its war against Russia, saying she shares a strong connection with the country through her familial roots. The “People” singer connected with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday in a Zoom call to offer her support, according to the Ukrainian government’s fundraising platform, UNITED24. The 80-year-old Academy Award winner’s paternal grandparents emigrated to the United States from Ukraine. Given her family’s “Ukrainian roots,” Streisand said she felt “especially moved” by the country’s fight against Russia’s invasion, which began in February. “The capability and courage of the Ukrainian people is an...

Liz Cheney (R-WY), has acted with courage, comparing her to Winston Churchill. Kinzinger said, “I’ll say about Liz, you know people always in their life dream about this opportunity to kind of stand up alone in a crowd and do the right thing, and only a few people actually get that chance. What I’ve noticed is that even fewer that get that chance have the courage to do it. It’s one thing to read something in a history book...

    We news junkies are deeply concerned about cultural shifts, education, political wrangling, and more — and we're right to be disturbed. It's the people who pay attention that shift the culture for better or worse. Occasionally, though, you need to remind yourself that there are 330 million people in America, many of whom are just getting through their day, trying to be good people who do the right thing. In the case of six high school football players, that means leaping into action to rescue a woman trapped in a crumpled car that seemed on the verge of bursting into...
